COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gulden Draak, lonely at the top for 25 years, now gets company
The birthday present: Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple, an enrichment of the Gulden Draak range.
An ode to the past and to the city of (9000) GHENT The Gulden Draak is named after the gilded statue on top of the belltower of Ghent. Such eminent symbol, that has been standing firm for over 6 centuries, deserves equally grand beers. The unsurpassed Gulden Draak as dark tripel of 10,5% alcohol gets, after 25 years of growing success, quite an addition, the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple.

All features of the Gulden Draak The extremely rich and complex taste sensation and the stable beer head can also be found in the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple. The sweet caramel touches, however, are still reserved for the Gulden Draak.

With addition of extra malt The new recipe, on basis of 3 different kinds of malt added in a volume of 4 times the content in lager, provide the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple with a deep golden amber colour and a fruity scent. Together with the smooth and subtle sweet taste ensures this a wonderfully accomplished bouquet.

In line with the traditions of Brewery Van Steenberge Just like the other specialty beers of Brewery Van Steenberge is the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple a beer of high fermentation with secondary fermentation. A wine yeast is used for the secondary fermentation, which also contributes to the grandiose taste.

Lighter variant of the classic Gulden Draak, which still retains its great taste, but is sweeter and has a more fruity bouquet.

malibrat (197) - Pula, CROATIA - FEB 18, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Slatka voćna-alkoholna aroma. Okus je isto voćni samo šta je malo kiselkastiji pa izgleda da je manje sladak od običnog Zmaja :) Tijelo je puno kao što se i očekuje od Quadrupela. Alkohol od 10, 7% je donekle utopljen u tu slatkoću. I tako ...malo mi je manje drag od običnog Draaka , ali sve jedno za ljubitelje 'baklavastih' piva je sasvim Ok :)

0,33l bottle at home shared by a friend. BB 09.10.2019. copper cloudy color, rather big white head. smells ripe fruits, belgian yeast, caramel, nutty, marzipan, nice to very nice smell. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes dried fruits, belgian yeasty, nutty, marzipan, caramel, light molasses. finishes rather balanced with notes of dried fruits, belgian yeast and nutty notes. surprisingly nice one, alcohol very well integrated, bit heavy but not overly sweet or cloying, good stuff.

GreenCat (233) - SLOVENIA - FEB 9, 2018
0,33 l bottle. Pours hazy amber with big, frothy, lasting light tan head. Aroma is very fruity, pears and stone fruit, raisin, honey and caramel malt aromas, yeast and a touch of alcohol. Taste is medium sweet, not overpowering and compensated by very mellow bitterness. Body is full, texture creamy and carbonation lively. Finish is long, fruity and moderately bitter. Alcohol is present, but not too much. It does give you that nice warm feeling in stomach.

Bottle. A Belgian abbey (not Trappist) gastronomic wonder. No astringency.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2018 Butelka 330 ml, ale 10,5% ABV. Godny, solidny quadrupel. Barwa brunatno-miedziana, piękna piana. Alkohol rozgrzewa, nie przeszkadza. Aromat drożdżowy, szampański, w smaku tudzież szampańskie, refermentacja daje fajne dla mnie uczucie cierpkości na języku i podniebieniu.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Donker oranje-goud, iets troebel. Mooie persistente schuimkraag, wit-licht geel van kleur. Neus is medium intens met veel karamel, licht fruitig. Zoet en vol in de mond en goed in balans met de CO2 (medium-). Afdronk is zoetig, heel licht bitter en lang. Top biertje, zeker een om vaker te drinken.

Tomada de barril. Color madera tostado, con detestellos caoba y naranjas, con espuma blanca y fina pero persistente. Aroma potente, muy frutal y ligeramente alcohólico. Carbonatacion elevada. En boca recuerda al cava, efervescente y seca. Muy frutal (uvas y manzana sobretodo) y algo dulce, tiene un toque licoroso y final amargo. Interesante cerveza, bastante potente, donde la elevada graduación alcohólica está muy bien integrada.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Une bière ambrée, très maltée, fruitée et légèrement sucrée avec des notes caramélisée. J'adore.

Bottle pour - cloudy with an apricot color. Typical aroma for a Belgian. Initially very sweet but balances out nicely.
